Thank you for your interest in working with EHS! We currently have the following job opportunities available:
Summer Teaching Internship
The East Harlem School at Exodus House is seeking college students interested in exploring the field of teaching to intern with our mandatory summer enrichment program. Interns will be a part of all aspects of the school including the academic and athletic program, individual tutoring, and extracurricular activities. Summer interns teach small classes of 6-8 students and should be prepared to show considerable initiative and leadership as they juggle multiple responsibilities, interact with youth in and out of the classroom, and work closely with the EHS faculty and administration. Summer interns teach math or humanities, an elective class of their choice, and cover sports periods in the afternoon. Intern teachers are responsible for creating lesson plans and assessments and should plan to spend some time in the evenings working on grading. Interns must demonstrate a solid academic record and a desire to work with highly motivated youth from East Harlem and surrounding communities.
By working with the East Harlem School, interns form meaningful relationships with students from East Harlem as well as with other summer interns, who come from top colleges around the country. Interns gain experience as classroom teachers in a setting which is conducive to first-time teaching. Through an intensive orientation, interns learn how to lesson plan and how to create appropriate evaluations. They will also have the chance to chaperone field trips each Friday to locations throughout New York.
The dates for Summer Session 2019 are June 17-19 for a mandatory Orientation and then July 1-July 31. Interns are expected to be at work from 8:30am-3:00pm Monday-Thursday and 8:30am-12:00pm on Fridays. Some exceptions may be made for interns who only wish to work during the afternoon sessions.
